Extra water storage is always helpful for bikepacking. Below I detailed a hack I came up with for mounting an extra bottle cage behind the Salsa Anything Cages on my fork. I’m very happy with it, so I figured I’d share for anyone out there who is working on dialing in their own bikepacking rig. Happy trails!
I was stressed about homework, so I didn’t compete in this cyclocross race. However, I did cheer you on and got a few good pictures of you racing:
This was your favorite race so far!
In case you haven’t heard, we are planning another long bike tour next summer. This time it will be different, though, because the majority of it will be on trails and dirt roads. To handle the different terrain, we will use different gear – this style of bike touring is referred to as bikepacking. Due to weddings and other craziness this spring and summer, though, we haven’t had a chance for any practice (“shakeout”) tours until now.
My time here so far has been great fun! I’ve gotten lots of time with family and friends. I went on a few bike rides, including biking with my dad to work.
